OvomorphMember0 XPJul-18-2012 1:35 AMI've been reading a bit of H.P Lovecrafts works and came across some interesting ideas that sound familiar.......... In his Cthulhu Mythos there are a couple of interesting characters [b]The Great Elders[/b]- ancient powerful dieties from space once ruled Earth and had a philosophy of cosmic indifference [b]Dark Water God[/b]-Malevolent entity trapped in water resembling and octopus/dragon/human In his book Mountains of Madness he refers to the Star Spawn who warred with another race called The Elders before the Dawn of Man I seem to remember reading somewhere they were going to make a movie based on Mountains of Madness but they pulled the plug for some reason??? anyway..... I wonder if P2 is going to take us to meet this Water God?

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-18-2012 1:55 AMWonder why the Prometheus film didn't deal with a water-based lifeform, other than the black goo and the aquatic design - [b]d'oh![/b] Mountains was pulled (for whatever 'likeness' reason) but G.D.T. HASN'T gone to see Prometheus, yet.

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-18-2012 3:24 AMtankgirl, this 'missing filming from spain' might be a(n accounting) red herring, as was the Morocco shooting and other stuff. Films are big complex things, and schedules (budgets) change all the time. Forget Alicante - never happened. :)

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-18-2012 8:42 AMWhat a great find, tankgirl. And a rather sad one. It’s a shame that Guillermo Del Toro may never film H P Lovecraft’s ‘At The Mountains of Madness’ because of the similarity. We could have watched them back-to-back. Only joking. BTW, I stopped reading HP Lovecraft when my mom kept handing me HP Sauce at breakfast. I liked what came out of that bottle but I just had this image … Not joking. LOL

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-18-2012 5:34 PMIf you are really into HP Lovecraft like I am. Then you guys should look up a podcast called HP Lovecraft literary podcast. It is narrated by two guys by the name of Chris Lackey and Chad Fifer. Each episode of the show talks about every single story that HP wrote. They give there opinions on why he wrote it, and so on. They have guest speakers and guests in general talking about HP life, and his work. The show is very entertaining and fun. The hosts are great. Also you will be amazed at how much HP Lovecraft has influenced science-fiction. But in the end he died poor and alone. But now he is getting the respect he deserves. Check out the show guys, you will not regret it.

NeomorphMember1566 XPJul-30-2012 8:08 PMI think your on to somethin there TG! It would make perfect sense that Ridley would base a Prequel on H P Lovecrafts work! Seeing as Giger was hugely inspired by his work, it would make sense! I think Prometheus is a mish-mash of different influences, including Lovecrafts work, Clash of the Titans (the 1981 version), Sumerian Mythology, Greek Mythology and Norse Mythology (Eitr). But, I think the Sequel will bring more questions than it Answers also...

The poster was good though!
